Question about Kenmore 659 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

The drum of my Kenmore 80 series electric dryer is not turning

After setting the timer start, the drum doesn't start turning even though the dryer releases hot air out of the exhaust. Everything else seems to be okay. Am wondering whether this could be something to do with the belt. Please advise. Thanks in anticipation.

Sounds like you need a new drum belt. start by taking the top off then the front panel will have screws inside for removing the front. then once the front is off you will see the motor and where the belt should be. if the belt is broken, replace it, if not just put it back on the motor and idler pulley.

I khave a Kenmore gas dryer 110-90 series. It no longer clicks off when the timer is set. Now, there is no heat coming from the dryer. The drum turns with air drying but no heat from any of the cycles.


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

the drum belt may be broken. you will have to check this, it goes around the drum and the pulley on the motor. you could also have a bad motor.

Kenmore electric dryer shuts off after 5 minutes and won't restar


when you try to start it again do you hear a humming comeing from the motor? can you jump start it by turning the drum while holding the start button? If you say yes to these questions you have a bad motor.

Kenmore Dryer 90 Series will start but suddenly stop...


Hello , Sounds like your motor is over heating , it will run until the sensor shuts it down from getting to hot , it is most likley because the motor is covered in lint and needs cleaned. Hope that helps.
